Pigeons enjoying the nice view!
This season on Shameless, Ian’s closeted love Mickey went from denying his feelings to eventual acceptance, bringing out the best in his portrayer Noel Fisher. In Sunday’s finale, Mickey’s fear of what his bar-drinking cohorts thought of his sexuality turned from defensive anger to bewilderment at their nonchalant response. “No one gives a s–t who you bang,” bar owner Kevin assured him, eliciting a disarmed expression rarely seen on the young man’s face. But just as things were starting to come together in Mickey’s personal life, Ian fell into a manic depression. When his sister Fiona suggested that Ian might need to be hospitalized, Fisher got to show off an unusually vulnerable and fearful side of his character. “I can take care of him!” he exclaimed desperately. “He’s f—ing family.” Mickey and Ian may have a rocky road ahead of them, but thanks to the depth of emotion Fisher brought to the episode, we have faith in their love.
